Only Nintendo 3DS, Wii U, Xbox One, And PlayStation 4 Show Software Growth In UK During January

uk-feb-2014-revenue

uk-feb-2014-unitsNintendo 3DS software in the United Kingdom sold over 50,000 units in January 2014, which is an increase of 47 percent from January 2013. Wii U has also faired well with software sales growing 91 percent, to 65,000 units. Unsurprisingly it’s the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4 shifting the most amount of software sales out of the four platforms mentioned, adding nearly half a million software units to the market. Software sales for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 have declined along with the Wii and the Nintendo DS.

    1. yes. though its not surprising. it would be awesome if ps4 and x1 didn’t increase though.

      nice to see PC and vita go down

      BUT WII U ALMOST DOUBLED IN A COUNTRY WHERE NINTENDO SELLS LEAST IN WOW!

      1. Indeed…

        These so called “PC Master Race” will know the power of our empire soon enough…

      2. Ahahahahahahah fitting indeed!

        I hope you lead our forces to victory and total Nintendomination!

      3. agreed. would be interesting to see if the OUYA is doing better than vita!
        also what is that square small thing? looks pathetic……

        also………I worry that Samsung is preparing an invasion. ( which would mean harder work for us and doomed sony(:/) if they can be better than them like in every market.))

      4. Actually the Samsungans are too busy fighting the Apples and even more troublesome, both of them are now facing a threat from the Dragon Empire’s new forces, The Huawei Elite…

      5. LOL. but whats that square thing in the corner?

        anyway samusng is able to do that, apple too( though the iPlay is a FAIL worse thanOUYA) . though amazon is the scary one ………I don’t like it.

      6. I don’t like the Amazons much, they took over a month to deliver my physics book last year…

      7. The Vita is doing better than the WiiU globally, you do realize that, right ? So, if at all, it would be the WiiU that’s doing worse than Ouya. And you should be ashamed of wanting to see other consoles/platforms fail, what kinda gamer are you even.

      8. Vita is at the bottom of the software revenue charts, with even the DS beating it idiot. What you smokin’?

      9. Vita is selling worse than wii u anyway on averqge per week. And wii u srill has some huge games to release so im not wprried about it.ouya was a fail from the start

      10. The pc players are some your “empire’s” biggest supporters and allies.

      11. I agree. he is delusional that guy who thinsk that.

        well at least 70% of PC players are allies!

      12. Indeed. PC gamers already have the power, so they can understand that gameplay, fun, and other Nintendo’s goals are essential to games, and therefore support Nintendo (most PC players I know actually at least like Nintendo).
        The reason of why non-Nintendo console players hate Nintendo is because they are dazzled by the power of PCs to which they aspire, and thus cannot think rationnally.

      13. Lol PC isn’t going down… people are just buying either laptops or building their own computers because it is cheaper.

        You won’t hear anyone saying they are going out of their way to buy a brandname PC who is under 39 years of age. Yet almost everyone has PC in their home..

      14. Dude, not cool.
        It’s fine for all markets to grow, we don’t need to be such bitter bitches, leave that to the fantards.

      15. “Nice to see PC and Vita go down” WTF dude. I don’t care what you have to say, you are NOT a gamer. You are a fanboy and a plague to the community,

      16. I play 3ds and pc and android actually.
        ussualy I don’t say such things but for once I felt like it since there are people like commander here.

      17. Well, I hate Vita but because I bought one and it became a dust collector, but that’s just personal experience, I don’t mind the other consoles.

      18. Well, PC harbors some of the most obnoxious gaming elitists.
        I don’t really care if it goes up or down.

      1. Yes because being able to play PS3 quality games on your handheld isn’t “Next gen”…. all though you are right… it’s actually current gen ;)

      2. Hey, I was only “trolling” the same way most of the nintendo haters in this NINTENDO NEWS do. I wasn’t even being serious but it actually worked. It pissed you of.

      3. And rewarded you shall be in the virtual world of gifts…

      4. Going by what generation actually mean and not what idiotic fanboys like you think it means, Vita is a 2nd generation item, PS4 is, like it’s namesake, a 4th generation item.
        meanwhile 3DS is an 8th generation item, and WIi U is a 7th generation item.

  1. I’ll rectify the title, only “ONLY NINTENDO 3DS, WII U, SHOW SOFTWARE GROWTH IN UK DURING JANUARY”
    The PS4 and Xone came this January, they don’t count.

      1. Oh no my friend…

        Behold the dream of our empire that cannot be destroyed by anything…

        Families and friends alike is that we strive for…

      2. Oh really? In the ebtertainment idustry they are unstoppable, But there are “empires” stronger than Apple and Sony you know.. I’m talking about real fucking militaries son, China and the US have the power to destroy if not dominate the world. Quit acting like Nintendo and Sony are Militaries, they are Corporations.

      3. You must be a republican or a die hard muslim, the most boring apes alive…

      4. Nope, I’m a 15 year old american boy with good grades and loves playing Nintendo games.

      5. Well, because you are 15 is why everyone at your school plays Xbox. Just wait until you are in college. Everyone there plays Nintendo ;)

      6. Hey, don’t bring Islam into this. This is a gaming community, keep it that way.

      7. Don’t talk about Islam that way.Sickr can you please delete his comment ?

      8. Then he should delete all comments bashing gays first…

      9. He said die-hard muslims. I’m assuming he means the types of muslim that are extremists asshats that are giving their religion a bad name.

      10. yes but its fun lol

        though USA IS THE ONLY EVIL THING IN THIS WORLD OR WHOEVER RULES THEM! (devil)

      11. Superior in what exactly? The lack of AAA titles? How expensive it is, maybe? How much it innovates?

        What I supposed.

      12. well no that I disagree with. playing with that back thing is uncortable and its far too large and heavy.

        thenormal 3ds is ok in terms of ergonomics. xl best and 2ds between.

      13. Do try to upgrade yourself to a 3DS XL if you can…

        It makes the original 3DS look so bad…

      14. The only downside to upgrading to 3DS XL is the speaker’s sound. The regular 3DS is sadly louder. But I don’t regret my choice. The 3D is more tolerable on a bigger screen, after all. Besides, I can always hook up some speakers to the 3DS XL.

      15. the vita is OVER rated. should have 8% marketshare not 15…………..though 80% of that is from japan anyway .

      1. 2 times in a row? Ha, I would love to see that, specially if it butthurts all the “Nintendoomed” trolls… and Patcher.

      2. I guess it’s not too farfetched…

        We did have 81% of the gaming universe in the Golden Age…

  2. and it will improve even more as the heavy hitter games are released. what amazes me is that DKCTF sold extremely well there I always thought the UK led the way in Nintendo bashing so whats up with that?

  3. DK must have pushed some units…
    Obviously February would be ANOTHER huge drop for Wii U again…
    NINTENDO, WHY CAN’t YOU KEEP THE MOMENTUM GOING WITH A STEADY STREAM OF GAMES DARN IT

    1. um that was for January.
      also next month LEGO game releases. plus in april we expect some game. which should be annocuned in march direct.

  4. this is brilliant.

    that’s even without a game …….so………………WII U MUST HAVE INCREASES EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEENNNNNNNNNNNN more in febuary :D.

    but yeah………..I wonder when the next direct will be????? either 14th martch(Yoshi) or 18th I suppose.(year of luigi end)

    1. I just hope it’s soon…

      I’m always waiting for exiting new orders from High Command…

  5. Probably about par for what I was expecting. It still disgusts me how many units Xbox shifts.

    1. Indeed…

      But that’s the mind of apes…

      They complain loudly when they are getting horribly treated but after some short time, their limited memories cannot remember the obnoxious disgusting violations the Xbots wanted to conduct…

      1. You are the biggest Nintendo fanboy I have ever had the displeasure of meeting. It’s people like you that give Nintendo fans bad names.

      2. Do tell me how exactly I do that if you please…

      3. I appreciate your concern…

        Specially since it wasn’t too long ago you were on the other wagon in some way…

      4. It wasn’t your acting i had a problem with, I believe it was something you said but i don’t remember.

      5. It was about him saying that you weren’t a “real” Nintendo fan.

      6. Oh, yeah i wasn’t happy about that, I rarely ever get mad though :D

      7. That’s true, i been on this site for two years and i never once seen you get into a heated arguement or curse.

      8. Your Gravatar offends me. Please change it. I expect a word friendly zone while on the internetz.

      9. He is certainly not fine…

        Yes, obviously he is having a “little fun”, but the extent at which he does it is just too much AT TIMES. Many of his comments are unnecessary.

      10. Better tell all the trolls to do the same then. They take things pretty far, too. If not further.

      11. theres always few exceptions in every fanbase but in the gaming industry Nintendo has the least of them by far.

  6. I predict the Wii U will shift -500,000 units in March. Consumers will return their purchased units from previous months. Nintendo should begin exploiting their intellectual properties in the automobile market if they want to stay relevant. Consumers want to drive a Chevy Donkey Kong, a Honda Metroid, a Ford Waluigi. The market is ripe, following these changes I predict a %50 increase in market share value and a total quarterly earning of $2,000,000.

      1. lol does OUYA count? I haven’t even heard anything about it other than it failed so bad literally everyone forgot about it like it never existed.

      2. OUYA has no point, it’s like a tablet, it loses the functionalities of all the things it is based off of, yet it costs more.
        Wit the tablet you have to carry around something the size of a laptop without the processing power of a laptop, with the functionalities you get on a phone minus the phone itself and its portability.
        OUYA runs Android, which most other devices can, so you’re buying a dedicated product that only runs Android games and has no other application like phones, tablets or PCs do, and you get a “console” that can’t run any good games.

  7. WOW THE WII U SUCKSSS BAWLLLSSS
    I feel bad for buying the WII U now
    Fuck Nintendo! actually fuck the WII U!!!

      1. he is a troll though. also the wii u is unsurpisngly turning around. we just need a game annocuned (or a release date ) for one for april.

        and how on earth those that lego game not sell most on ninty consoles…………!? that’s pathetic. though it is yet to release for wii u next month.

      2. Lego games are generally not very good.
        I mean, they’re functional, but they’re short and uninspired.
        The only truly awesome games from the series are the Lego City ones.
        They had a huge chance to bring many of the elements of those games to Lego Movie Videogame, but it turned out as just another shallow 5-7 hour Lego game in the vein of Harry Potter, Marvel or LotR.
        What I don’t get is why they didn’t bring back the sandbox style, Lego just screams sandbox.

  8. Well, technically those are the only consles that matter anyways. Why do they call the DS “NDS”? I mean, they don’t call the 3DS “N3DS”. Just annoys me.

    1. well actually the atual name is Nintendo ds and Nintendo 3ds………even for smahs 4 3ds version it says “for Nintendo 3ds”.

      3ds is for short.

      1. They’re most likely working names and they’ll give us the real name at e3.

  9. And that’s just because XBONE and PS4 just launched and don’t have any previous numbers above 0.
    I love how Vita is dead and buried, so long overpriced brick.
